Why order flowers through us?

Buying flowers from us ensures that your order will be fulfilled through working with a network florists that are trusted by local funeral homes and recognized partners of the funeral industry. A customized message, along with a photo of your selected arrangement will remain in perpetuity within this memorial website. This service also includes “Smart Select” whereby the store notifies you if your floral selection has already been selected by another sender. This allows you the opportunity to choose a different product to ensure the family has a beautiful and unique selection of unique floral arrangements.

The price of these selections also includes the funeral home’s care of the flowers after the funeral and the delivery to the family or facility of choice where they can be rearranged and enjoyed by others for a longer period.

Memorial Candles

A Perpetual Tribute

The solitude and quiet peace of a flickering candle has long been a symbol of remembrance. Each candle lit will remain lit within this memorial website for the period you select. Your thoughtful gesture will be captured both in the candle as well as listed in perpetuity within the tributes section.

Memorial Trees

Circle of Life

In today’s changing world with climate change and environment concerns, “Honoring a Life” allows for family and friends to plant a memorial tree in honor of their loved one and friend. The purchase of a tree creates a beautiful permanent record on the Honoring a Life website, www.honoringalife.org. Each tree is planted through the efforts of Forestry Services throughout North America who determine where the greatest needs for reforestation are. Once planted, the geographical location where the tree is planted will be added to the record. A beautiful card is also sent to the family signifying your thoughtful gesture.

Obituary for Sister Lisa Cartrice Lewis McClain

God saw the road getting rough,
The hills was hard to climb,
He gently closed her loving eyes,
And whispered, “Peace be Thine”.

The weary hour, the sleepless nights,
The days of pain are past,
The ever patient worn out frame,
Has found sweet rest at last.

Her Beginning: Lisa was the third of three children born to Fred and Mamie
Geneva Lewis on August 16, 1970, in Milton, Florida.

Her God: She joined the Mount Zion Primitive Baptist at an early age. She was a member of the Female Choir.

Her Legacy: She was educated in the public school system of Santa Rosa County, attending Oakhurst Elementary School, King Middle School and Milton High School. She received her Certified Nurse’s Assistant Certificate from Fortis Institute in Pensacola, Florida.

Her Work: She worked for the Gulf Coast Physicians Partners, NAS Whiting Field Naval Hospital and Sacred Heart Medical Park in Pace, Florida.

Her New Beginning: On Wednesday, August 7, 2013, her dad, Fred went to be with her mom, Geneva in Heaven. He told her Lisa is sick and needs to be here with us. They asked God to bring her home and God said: "Permission Granted". On Wednesday, October 23, 2013 at 6:23 AM, God called Lisa home and said: "No more Sickness, No more Suffering".

Her Memory: Preceded her in death were her parents, Fred and Mamie Geneva Lewis.

Memories Remain: Her son Barry McClain Jr. (his friend Haley Allison), daughter Felisa McClain, Granddaughter Laila Lee Bradshire, two brothers Willie Lewis, Frederick (Cheryl) Lewis, one nephew Timothy Lewis, Grandmother Louise Lewis, Stepmother Christine Lewis, Step-brothers Kenneth Walton and Calvin Johnson, Step-sister Mitzi Longmire.
